The feature film, Breath, was produced in the Great Southern region of Western Australia in the town of Denmark in early 2016. The film is an adaptation of the highly-acclaimed novel of the same title by West Australian novelist Tim Winton.

The film was directed by Simon Baker (The Mentalist, Devil Wears Prada, Margin Call), and starred Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, The Night Manager, upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge, The Turning, Mission: Impossible II) and Rachael Blake (Sleeping Beauty, Rake, Truth) as well as WA locals Samson Coulter and Ben Spence who play the film’s young leads Pikelet and Loonie.
